IT'S SUMMER!!! O how I miss the time in my life when I would have 2 months to enjoy the Summer, go to the beach, have fun and pretty much do whatever. I look back at those days and I can't help but think of how much I took Summer for granted. So many days of waking up super late, doing nothing and then doing the same thing the next day. Yes, I worked at times but still had a lot of free time. This past Sunday we spoke to the teens about how to have a productive Summer. This is a great opportunity to do something with your life, to become the person you want to be, to work on breaking bad habits and try to be the person you and God want you to be. This is an especially great time to work on your relationship with the Lord. As parents you can help your teens by encouraging them and giving them ideas, and as teens it's great to make a plan of action. We came up with a couple of different ideas to not let your summer be pointless and we wanted to share them with you. So here they are...
I hope this helped you all. In all you do remember you are not alone, God is always with you and He is waiting for you to chat with Him! You are all in my thoughts and prayers! Also please Join us Tomorrow June 6, 2013 for Arise, Mass at NOL Site 6:30pm then Adoration and Praise and Worship. Bring your Family, it's a great way to pray and come together. God bless you all and remember THIS FRIDAY IS THE FEAST DAY OF THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS, I challenge you to go see HIm!
